On the 4 wire receptale, the hot wires will connect to the 2 middle terminals, the ground to the green screw, and the white (neutral) opposite of the ground,

ground, white, green, black ???

In North America (if that is where you are), the green is ground. So please describe the wire that you are calling "ground", because it may not be.

The two slanted slots are for the two hot wires (usually black and red, or black and black), in either order. They should be labeled "X" and "Y". The middle slot is for the neutral (white), labeled "W".

Thanks for everyone's help--yes. I am in N.A. and the ground wire is actually a bare copper wire, so Ii will put the white neutral, opposite, and then the two hotwires in between those as pointed out to me earlier.

So which two wires are you counting as "the two hot wires"? I hope not the green wire! Perhaps that green wire is really blue???

Actually, I went back and looked at my wires again and they are copper ground, white, red and black.
Thanks,
